A parasitological investigation was performed at Brazzaville, Congo Republic, from April 1968 to September 1968 (dry season).
Ascaris lumbricoides and hook worms are most common among intestinal parasites. A culture method was used with filter paper for the detection of species of hook worm in feces, and the results were shown as a map of hook worm distribution in Brazzaville city.
On examination of blood smears, the most popular parasites are Plasmodium falciparum. P. ovale was seen in 9 per cent of patient with malaria. About filariae, Loa boa is very common and on the other hand Acanthocheilonema perstance is scarcely seen.
On urinaly examination, Schistosoma haematobium was found.
However intermediate host of S. haematobium could not seen in Brazzaville city. This means that effective removal of the parasites from this area is possible.
For the purpose of complete removal of these parasites an importance of spreading the knowledge of public health to the original inhabitants has been much impressed during this work, although the usual medical treatment will be effective temporarily.
